on November 11, 2018 - 7:10am

Sandhill Cranes in flight Friday morning at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. The 31st Annual Festival of the Cranes gets underway Wednesday, Nov. 14 and includes more than 140 events, drawing photographers, birders and wildlife enthusiasts from around the country to celebrate the return of the Sandhill Cranes to their winter home. To get to the refuge, drive south on I-25 past Socorro to exit 139 (San Antonio), go east 0.25 miles on US 380 to the flashing signal at the village of San Antonio, turn right onto Old Highway 1, and drive south nine miles to the Visitor Center on the right.
